Space Exploration

As part of our light and dark topic the Ladybirds have been exploring Space.

The children helped paint a large cardboard box to create a space rocket.

We used the children’s laptops to explore the different planets in the solar system.

The children painted planets as they learnt the different names and facts about each one.

Some favourites included, Venus, Saturn and Earth.

We then created a dark corner with twinkly lights and pretended to blast off to space.

The Ladybirds had lots of fun singing songs such as 5 astronauts and zoom zoom zoom we’re going to the moon.

We also read a new favourite story “Whatever next” about a bear who goes to Space in a cardboard box.

The Ladybirds took it in turns to play inside and explore the space rocket and loved poking through the portholes saying hello to their friends.

The children used lots of imagination whilst playing and had so much fun.
